Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver

No more voice commands

I've had my Garmin Nüvi 200 for about 3 months now, and it's been working very well until it stopped giving voice commands. I've checked the volume, and that's OK. I still get beeps and the Mute isn't on. I just wonder why I can't hear any voiced commands. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

When i try to use the voice command on my garmin 3790 ltm it says that the feature is not available in Canada! It worked when i first bought it a month ago any way to reset it or any advice...thanks...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa! The voice command in Garmin 3790 totally depends on the mapset. Some custom mapsets lose this feature. It's to do with files used and converting files. Reverse converter often has this problem. It can also be caused by some unlocking techniques, May be you are somewhere in Canada where map set is not configured for this so your voice command is not working and you are getting this problem. You can call Garmin Support back to clarify this.
Though i am telling you that how can you Master reset it, May be it can helpful for you. First of all go to Map Screen, Press and hold speed icon, In trip calculator window, Hold the center dash icon until it takes you to config screen,here you can reset it
I hope I have given you a clear picture. If you have anything else in your mind to ask. Its you right. Do post.
Concerned, Nooh : Team FixYa

My garmin 200 gps is not coming on?


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset on the unit.
Resetting Your nüvi
If your unit stops responding, turn off the unit, and then turn it back on. If this does not help, perform a reset using the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
Caution: Do not reset your nüvi with a ballpoint pen or other sharp object, which can damage your unit.
1. Disconnect the nüvi from external power.
2. Press the Reset button on the bottom of the nüvi.
3. Connect the nüvi to a power source.

A hard reset can also be done but will erase all the user data.
This is done by with the unit off and pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while turning the unit on.

You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

I have a garmin 3970t and the voice command does not work


The Garmin's not very good at recognising the default set phrase to initial voice command; i.e. "Voice Command". If you bring up the Tools menu, and touch Voice Command, it will tell you what phrase it's expecting to hear and provide a button to touch to customise it. The default, as I said, is "voice command", but for some reason, it thinks it's pronounced something like "Vwuss commont". Try it. It might work!

I changed my voice command phrase to "Voys Commarnd" (I'm English - it's how my accent would be written phonetically). It now works most of the time without a problem.

Garmin Nuvi 265 wt...how to get voice command to work?


Hi,
this may require two sessions but - here goes:
1- turn the unit on - select the VOICE icon on the opening screen - triple check it isn't muted and change it to 90% voice volume.
If this doesn't give you sound WHILE DRIVING - it won't give you voice unless you're moving or driving.

Then - turn the unit off - Turn it back on- - as it is starting up - and blank- place your thumb in the LOWER RIGHT CORNER of the blank Screen.

this will open this window:
SELECT - YES - it will reboot and your minor settings will be lost - like saved address and favorites - not your updated maps.

This will reset you to default NEW -
When done - sound will be as it was when new if no sound - return for repair.

Garmin Nuvi 265w voice command stopped working. Any suggestion on what to check?


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you are not receiving any sound on your Nüvi 2xx the first thing to check is that the sound is not muted. To ensure that your units sound is not muted please perform the following:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Press the Volume button on the ‘Where To?’, ‘View Map’ screen
  3. Ensure the Mute box is not ‘checked’
If the mute button is not ‘ticked’, you will need to change the voice to ensure that the preset voice is not faulty:
  1. Turn the device on
  2. Touch the Tool icon
  3. Touch Settings
  4. Touch Language
  5. Touch the language voice next to Voice
  6. Scroll through and select another appropriate voice

If changing the voice is not helping you will need to ensure that you are running the latest software which can be done by installing a program called WebUpdater. WebUpdater can be installed via the link below:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27

Once updated please allow the unit to reboot which will ensure the software successfully installs.

If after following all the above the final steps would be to perform a master reset:

Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers on. After 5-10 seconds you will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

The device will automatically reset. Please follow the on screen prompts on the nuvi and when completed place your device in an area with a clear view of the sky until it acquires satellites.

It just stopped talking. No voice directions, on


Hit the menu buttom, go to settings, then go to volume and see if it is muted. Sounds like the mute or volume down button got inadvertantly hit and turned down or muted. If this does not work, turn the unit over and look under the fold up antenna for a reset button. Depress this button until the unit restarts and should reset the unit back to factory default settings and get you on your way. Good luck!!! If these don't help you, call the garmin support number at :1-800-800-1020. Hope this helps!

Sound forGarmin NUVI 200 voice command only works sometimes.


I called the phne number 1-800-800-1020 ( I received from the free service list) and spoke to GARMIN customer service. The rep. ( Bill ) was so very nice. He was going to send me to the TECH. dept. but I had already tried re-setting my NUVI according to the trouble shooting directions. He said in most cases that's all it takes. I've sent my NUVI off to the address given to me and he said that they'd either repair or replace it within 10 days,, ALL AT NO COST TO ME!! Thank you FIXYA for the ph. number. Thank you GARMIN for the SERVICE. I can't wait to get my GARMIN NUVI 200 back, I enjoyed it when it was working . CHARLYNN

Garmin Nuvi 200 Voice no longer working


Does your Nuvi 200 have a headphone jack? If so, try that with a pair of headphones. If you hear sound, then your internal speaker went bad. It's a known problem with the Nuvi.

Street names

Question
: My nuvi is supposed to speak street names when giving voice prompts but it doesn't. How can I fix this?
Answer: All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (i.e. 'Turn Right in 500 feet') as well as 'text-to-speech' voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.
In order to change this setting on the nüvi line of products, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names.
